When Alameda Wine Company opened its doors to Alameda CA next to the historic and newly restored Alameda theater, my friends and I started going there for the wine, the cheese and the company. Because Karen, the proprietor, was so good and so knowledgeable, I blogged about her store and posted it on Localism. Next time I went there, she was so effusive with her thanks that she gave me a huge hug a complimentary glass of wine, and a contant flow of thanks. :) All in a day's work as a REALTOR and blogger. With a greeting like that, what do you think it would do to my incentive to keep going there? Don't you think I would apply that kind of greeting and thanks for clients? You betcha!
